Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba will not be with his team-mates on their warm weather trip to Marbella, Spain during the Premier League’s winter break, MySportDab reports.
Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has ordered Paul Pogba to stay in Manchester as the first-team squad travels to Spain on Friday morning for a warm weather training camp.
Pogba’s United future has been a subject of rumours for years, despite the fact he arrived back at Old Trafford for a second spell in 2016.
A transfer to Real Madrid has long been long on the cards for Pogba before United payed them a then world-record, £89m fee four years ago.
And another transfer from United to Juventus, having left Manchester for Turin in 2012, has also been in the talks.
According to the Daily Star, Pogba is a step closer to a second exit from United, after being left out of their trip to Marbella.
Manchester United will make the most of the newly-imposed winter break by traveling the first-team squad to the Costa del Sol, and will fly on Friday morning.
But Pogba will not be part of the squad heading to southern Spain, with the 26-year-old left on his own, having being in the Middle East recently.
The United academy graduate is still recovering from injury having battled such problems all season, making him to have just eight appearances across all competitions.
He only returned after an ankle issue before Christmas, playing as substitutes vs Watford and Newcastle, only to then miss United’s last 12 league and cup matches with more problems, having to undergo minor surgery.
The Daily Star claim Pogba is not fit enough to train with his team-mates but has been left behind by Solskjaer who simply did want the Frenchman present.
MySportDab understands the Norwegian coach is unwilling to have him around the squad despite the player being popular in the dressing room.
Pogba make it clear he wanted to leave United in the summer and suggested it “could be the right time for a new challenge somewhere else”.
The United board are resigned to losing Pogba this summer, having previously stated that he would remain at the club, while his team-mates expect him to move on.
